AVAILABLE AGAIN - LAST COPIES!!!
Finally! After Auchmithie Forever's treasures were unleashed last year, now here comes what you've all been waiting for: a complete reproduction of arguably THE best example of the pop side (or any side, really!) of the UK DIY post-punk era. Dundee's SMEG, BURT, SID & STRIPEY originally released Revelation themselves in handmade, ill-fitting covers in 1980, and thirty-one years later it still deserves to be filed alongside '14th Floor,’ 'Spiral Scratch,' and 'The Medium is Tedium.' With more hits on one single than most bands have across multiple albums, the five songs here perfectly encapsulate the excitement of the UK post-punk explosion from the perspective of a teenage record fanatic. From the raging proto-hardcore 'Radio Tay' and the untouchable bedroom powerpop of ‘Helicopter Honeymoon,’ to the gloomy 'Night Train' and the dreary pop classic ‘Pick the Cats Eyes Out,’ Revelation sounds almost like a clunky sampling of what was happening at the time but simultaeously outdoes the band's idols with its stripped-down purity and undeniably instant catchiness. Remastered and packaged in glossy glued sleeves, and including a repro of the orginal entertaining ditto-on-gold paper insert (complete with connect the dot games and 'Do the Scrote' dance instructions), it's worth the wait! First pressing of 500 copies.
